Why Dudley?

About Dudley

Once at the heart of the Industrial Revolution, Dudley borough consists of four main towns: Brierley Hill, Dudley, Halesowen and Stourbridge. Each has a wealth of heritage, from Stourbridge’s Glass Quarter to Dudley’s 12th century castle, from Halesowen’s historic Leasowes Park to Brierley Hill’s modern retail delights. The towns contribute their own different qualities to the borough making it a special and fascinating place.

The council has been praised for its work with diverse communities and works hard to strengthen them. Working with partner agencies is also very important to Dudley Council. If you join our 14,000 plus workforce you’ll find an ethos of partnership working with the common goal of making the borough a good, healthy and safe place to live, work and visit.
